I need help

Warning:Grammar mistakes
I just bought a asus gtx 750 ti and then cried over it because my psu had no 6 pin power connector for it then i heard about the 6 pin to sata and i was overjoyed by the idea and bought it asap but now i have attached it to my gpu and fortunately it was a perfect fit but when i power on my pc it the gpu would not even start no fans running no display nothing.Can anyone help me i just want to know how to run the gpu

THINGS TO BE NOTED
I can not change my psu cuz its the only psu that works with the motherboard neither do i have the money to do so.
I just want the power supply to run even if it costs the whole house to burn down

It is not possible for your psu to be the only one that works with your motherboard.
What power supply to you have?

is it an OEM computer? IE: dell, HP, etc?

if so, it's probably too small of a PSU. They also make 4 pin MOLEX >>> PCIe. This is what I used on the first system I ever chucked A PGU in (HP pavilion)

what are you sticking this gpu into? sounds quite a bit like an OEM computer.

I'd recommend trying MOLEX >> PCIE first, then look into if the OEM procured a larger model of the same PSU for a higher end model in the same segment (IE : one that came with a gpu)

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

An underpowered PSU wouldn't prevent the PC from booting since the GPU is basically idle.

I'd go for the molex to pcie power adapter 1st.

What PSU do you have?

You have to have a proper PSU to run a videocard. That one needs a 450-500w unit.

In b4 traces blow up on the mobo.
